Lab Course 103A -Section 006 Physics Laboratory Report Lab number and Title: Lab M: Thin Lenses Name: Nicholas Ramirez Group members: Carlos Skerrett, Gerome Garses, Shail Sheth, Conor Mccan, Erin Heidleberger Experiment Date : 4- 21-17 Instructor’s name: Sizhan Liu Objective: To measure the focal lengths of converging and diverging lenses. To study the image formation of thin lenses graphically (by drawing the ray diagram) and analytically (by calculation using the thin-lens equation). To study the image formation of thin lenses by doing experiments. Background/Equation: Lenses are commonly used to form images by refraction in optical instruments, such as cameras, telescopes, and microscopes. A typical thin lens consists of a piece of glass or plastic, ground so that each of its two refracting surfaces is a segment of either a sphere or a plane. Lenses with two spherical surfaces sufficiently close together that the distance between them (the thickness of a lens) can be neglected are called thin lenses.
